(CBS Local/CBS Chicago)- Two weeks in the books, and every fantasy owner is likely responding to their start to the season in a similar fashion to many NFL teams.
2-0? Feeling good about your chances to make the playoffs and possibly win the league. 1-1? Could be worse, nothing to panic about, you’re right in the middle of the pack, with plenty of time to move up. 0-2? What happened? How did we miscalculate? Are injuries a factor?
No matter what your standing after two weeks, there is still time to turn things around, as long as you’re paying attention to your matchups each week. That is where the guys from Fantasy Football Today come in. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Heath Cumming are here to break down Week 3 and tell you which players you should definitely have in your lineups and which you may want to avoid.
This week, the guys have a surprising team contributing three players to the start/sit watch. The 2-0 Buffalo Bills! Sean McDermott’s team has been dominant defensively, but there are some things to like about the offense this week, particularly since they are going up against the Cincinnati Bengals. See the guys’ list of picks below and hear their reasoning behind each of them in the video at the top of this post.
